Mirage News reported on Australia’s Chief Veterinary Officer Mark Schipp completing his term as President of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).
The 88th Annual General Session of the World Assembly of the OIE was held virtually from May 24-28, 2021.
The organization agreed on new standards across governments on animal health and welfare and developed a Wildlife Health Framework. In part, these efforts responded to the continuing emergence of zoonotic diseases including COVID-19. The OIE has also introduced an OIE Observatory to collect data and provide information to support animal health challenges.
